Sharjeel 4 from 10 balls

And then 36 from 18 balls
 
Sharjeel Khan bohot marta hae yaar. He’s venting all his past frustrations in this tournament that was originally meant to be fun games.
 
Are you siding with Steyn now or sticking with Sharjeel

The whole tourney has been played in wet overcast conditions.
I’m just saying it’s not easy to hit a bowler of Steyn’s quality in these conditions.
 
Sohaib Maqsood paying tribute to Multan Sultans today
 
Complete waste of an innings. Ruining the momentum of Sharjeel also
 
Tbf Maqsood has been good so it’s not fair to criticise him for the flop show today

But it’s proof this isn’t an easy wicket to bat on
 
This is a fair test

Tahir v Sharjeel

Sharjeel has struggled to pick him

Sharjeel khan is the biggest waste of talent from Pakistan in the past decade. Only God knows what he would done if he was allowed to open in place of Babar or Rizwan
 
Sharjeel would have murdered these remaining bowlers

Poor game awareness
 
Lol Charles langeveldt is 50 years old hahaha. It's embarrassing for players like fat hack to hit 50 years old buzurg like him
 
It's embarrassing to watch current players bashing these fully retired 50 years oldies.
There are a few players in every team who are kind of active

South Africa have Dane Villas and Snyman, Imran Tahir was in PSL last year

West Indies with Chadwick Walton, Fidel Edwards and Suleiman Ben

India’s 4-5 unknown guys are active fc cricketers apparently. Some of their players retired just last year.

England have picked a pretty poor team tbf.

Australia ok with Coulter Nile, Dunk, Finch, Payne

Sharjeel isn’t the only one who shouldn’t be if that’s the case.
 
The sixes Sharjeel hit were crowed killers

Absolute bombs!
 
Younis sent Afridi, Razzaq and Malik ahead of himself and Misbah


Misbah would have sent himself before Razzaq and Afridi
 
Lovely to see Razzaq in full flow. More enjoyable than watching sharjeel and Malik etc.

Retired v Retired is what makes this interesting.
